I see it as an unnecessary distraction from his teammates who were still playing in the 1997 playoffs.

Okay. Wish you had more details. I don't remember other players having issues with the medical staff, though, but I could easily be wrong there.
And if you really want to talk about the difference, just 2 years before Roy was traded, he came down with appendicitis before game #3 of the Habs first round match up with the Bruins. A game the Habs lost 6-3. Roy convinced the Doctor's to let him play and he won game #4 5-2 and game #5 2-1 in OT before losing game 6 and 7.
